    I am new to OS X and since I have used Winamp for 16 years which didn't offer any frills (I used a version from 1999 until recently) I am now searching for a free lightweight music player that can play MP3 (FLAC would be a nice bonus) and is not overloaded with lots of features I never want to use.

    I would like to just drag and drop single files or folders into the player. I don't want to use a library. The VLC player comes close but I got two problems with it:

    1. When I close VLC player my playlist is gone. I want the app to remember my last playlist (without having to save it to a file).

    2. When I randomly play the MP3s in the playlist, it doesn't jump to the current title. In order to find it I have to manually scroll around in the playlist and see which track is highlighted.

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a solution for these two problems in the settings of VLC.

    So what could be alternative apps for me?
